Nerdist: Play – How Important Is Video Game Resolution to You?

Will you play any game that renders in under 1080p resolution? Are you a graphics aficionado who needs to play all of your video games in the highest of settings? I’ve seen the discussion of video game resolution flare up on various message boards, often as a means of determining whether a version of a game is superior on certain platforms. Ubisoft made many folks upset with its decision to have parity across the board with Assassin’s Creed: Unity‘s resolution, settling for 900p across all platforms. Though video game resolution isn’t quite a deal breaker for me, seeing Dragon Age: Inquisition has definitely made me consider 4K gaming in the future for the sake of optimization.

In today’s Nerdist: Play, we discuss the idea of video game resolution, and whether or not it’s important to a game’s success… but not before visiting one of the most “lifted” creations in gaming that you’ve seen in quite a while.

There are a lot of video games we’re going to be playing this week, so no twitter question today folks. But if you want to have your voice heard on the next episode of PLAY, be sure to join the conversation with yours truly over on Twitter!

    For me its very important! As I have a terrible laptop and if I want to play the games I love I need to play with minimal settings which means changing the resolution to as small as I can, cause hey the graphics arent important the gameplay and fun factor are what matters

    I’ll say that gaming resolution is definitely a part of it. But ultimately not a deal breaker. For me it’s more about the overall experience and whether I enjoyed a game or not.
